“I couldn’t be happier with the experience I’ve had dealing with Academy College and Thunderbird Aviation. Academy and Thunderbird worked with me and my schedule so I was able to finish within three years.”

“My experience at Academy College gave me the solid foundation knowledge to promptly AND successfully begin my commercial aviation career.”

“When I was considering the Aviation Business Program at Academy College, I was at a point in my life where I wanted to re-energize and refocus. I was a newly divorced, 40 year old single mother, but I was determined to head into the future with a greater ability to fulfill all of my ambitions and dreams. Academy College gave me the perfect platform from which to define my future both as a professional and as an individual in all my various roles. I think of my enrollment at Academy College as a defining point in both my professional career and my personal life.
One of the most unique aspects for me was discovering that it’s not an experience that begins and ends. Academy College provides the catalyst that enables you to transform yourself. You continue to draw from the network that you build, and you continue to flourish after the educational experience. The instructors are real people who work in the aviation and business industries, and they have valuable experiences to share with their students. The Aviation Business Program challenged me to question assumptions and stretch myself as a person and leader, while giving me the knowledge and resources to find an exciting career in the aviation business field.”
